you find a good one, tell me about him. >> where might i look. >> stephen: jon stewart. (laughter) he's really funny. he's really funny. let me ask you, political writing from a decade without a name this past decade, you mean. >> it's a weird decade which in a way begins with 9/11 and i think ends on the fourth of november 2008 when barack obama was elected president. and i think the very different agenda comes because obama's election comes with a financial and economic crisis. and suddenly that whole narrative which is that we're living through the fourth world war, that world history for the next 20, 30 years will is all going to be about the battle with islamist terrorism t doesn't seem to be quite like that any more. >> stephen: what is the battle? where is the fourth world war? >> i'm not sure. let's hope there isn't the fourth world war but what i do think, i have an account in this book of a very extraordinary meeting with george w bush in the early summer of 2001. don't look like that. >> stephen: hi an extraordinary meeting with him too once. but go ahead. >> i want to hear

jon: they need some ovel-ready projects over there, don't they? jenna: i think that's part of the problem. thanks for joining us, everyryryryryryryryry jenna. in the meantime, check this out. this is a fox news alert on the deadly dome of heat out there that united states america, can you believe this? it is also threatening the nation's power grid. welcome to "america live" today, i'm martha maccallum on this hot day in for megyn kelly. 141 million americans are in this dome, folks. it covers more than two dozen states. sweaty, miserable, just trying to stay cool out there at this hour. 33 states are under serious heat watches and warnings. the sweltering weather quickly starting to spread east. her folks, power companies are urging people to turn down your air-conditioning to just the amount that you really need with concerns that overuse may put a significant stress on the nation's power grid. the unbearable heat has also claimed lives, we are now learning, at least 22 deaths are being attributed to the heat. the east coast can is now bracing for record heat here as well
is at stake with special interests. and finally have the media. i'm going to tell michele bachmann story. jon stewart made this point. he said 24-hour cable was invented for o.j. simpson. it was invented for the o.j. trial. o.j. does not kill somebody every day, thank goodness. the problem is, these people have to fill those 24 hours even when o.j. has not murdered somebody. so what they do is fill it with michele bachmann. i have a particular grievance with her. i was speaking at the university of indiana. this is a real story. six months ago, i was talking to their honor society. i go back to the hotel room and i turned on the t b. -- i turned on the tv. it is cnn. anderson cooper is doing a story where he is explaining he has to rebut and correct a story he had on the night before. what was the story? congresswoman michele bachmann was on the night before and said that president obama's trip to india was going to cost $2 billion. what ever it was. and he had let it go. he did a wonderful thing, anderson cooper. he'd be constructed the whole -- deconstructed the whole story, showed how it b
gingrich, jon huntsman, senator santorum is not even on here. he is at 2%. plenty of 3%. steve? >> yeah, this is a very tough news for tim pawlenty. one reason i think he held the press conference last night, he needs to do everything he can to keep himself in the discussion and in the news. so he is giving major economic speech. gives a major foreign policy speech at a time when most strategists would say it's early to be doing that. but he needs to do that to make news and renape the discussion men your numbers are as paltry as they've been -- discussion when your numbers are as paltry as they've been. >> bret: anecdotally talking to people in iowa yesterday anthe day before, he still has support in iowa from folks who look at him as an alternative to mitt romney and people who like him. >> i think so. he does. he is having trouble expanding and gaining traction in a wider audience. i think one of the ways that it shows itself and the way he reacted in minnesota today. he didn't st protect his flank on this by avoiding people attributing what is happening to him. he got toh. he said i

[laughter] but i'm going to try. >> i was waiting for a compliment. [laughter] >> that was a compliment. >> okay. >> that was a compliment. [laughter] you, you -- in the beginning of your remarks you talked about public diplomacy and what challenge it was for both our countries. you were quoted recently as talking about remarks you made at pakistan's national defense university where you asked your audience, um, who pakistan's enemy was. you asked them how many of them thought that al-qaeda was the enemy, and not too many raised their hands. you asked them whether india was the enemy, and not too many raised their hands, a few more. and then you asked them if the united states was the enemy, and that's where you got most of the hands raised. that is something in this country just find in explicable, just can't understand. they say, my gosh, we've given pakistan $20 billion over the past eight or nine years and, granted, that's kind of a p
just crossing the wire, the campaign manager for former utah governor jon huntsman, her name is susie wiels, and she is resigning. we are working to independently confirm this story. that report is coming in from "the washington post." we'll let you know what we get when we get it. >>> all right. now let's go to the latest in the u.k. phone hacking investigation of news corp. international which is -- news international, i should say, which is owned by news corp., the parent company of fox news. greg talcott on this story for us today live from london. hi, greg. >> reporter: hey, martha. investigators continue to look at that phone hacking scandal amid new reports of a possibly broader scope to that probe. this comes after a week of dramatic testimony, we've heard from the chairman, chief executive of news corp., rupert murdoch, on tuesday, and yesterday in the house of commons, british prime minister david cameron was on the hot seat. questions continue today about his dealings with news corp. executives. his government is sticking to the line there were no inappropriate discussions.
